52 weeks of colour challenge, week 16 – teal

I found a knock-out teal bridesmaid’s dress that didn’t really look like a bridesmaid’s dress, and boy oh boy, did I snap it up and hope that no one else participating in Luna’s challenge found the same dress.

Then I put it on.

And looked like a bridesmaid.

From the movie, The Wedding Singer.

The bodice survived but somehow I ended up all Alice in Wonderland as well.

52 weeks of colour challenge, week 15 – red

My first and only idea for Luna Jubilee’s challenge this week was an old and beloved Camie Cooper dress that came in a fat pack in red, pink, grey and navy. I still wear them when I feel like being a ballerina, or a dance partner to two mannequins who look like they’ve been snapped off musical jewellery boxes.

52 weeks of colour challenge – week 14, black

I adore this mish-mash outfit for Luna Jubilee’s challenge and am keen to return to this sim to play in its stark greyness. Someone said to me, “Isn’t it bleak?” as if it were a negative trait. I couldn’t have been more pleased. But after some long days of commuting and spending too much time in front of a computer screen at the office, the last thing I’ve been capable of is playing dress-ups in SL.

As much as I don’t like wishing my life away, I can’t wait for the next few weeks to pass when my schedule becomes much more hobby-friendly.

52 weeks of colour challenge, week 13 – emerald

I just felt like going a bit crazy. The end.

Okay, it’s not the end as I always have something to say. My original interpretation of emerald was a darker, more intense shade, much like the deep pools of colour in jewellers’ window displays. But Luna’s colour swatch for the challenge was a brighter, more innocent emerald and I ran with it instead. It was like trying not to play favourites as both are equally delightful in their own ways.

Happy rezday to me

I turned four the other day, but it’s taken me a week to find little scraps of time to turn some ideas into fruition, or reluctantly kick them to the curb as the case was a few times.

My original idea was to gift myself any outfit I wanted — my poorly Linden bank balance be damned! — but I traipsed every favourite shop and couldn’t make a decision from the choice overload.

So my idea borne of backlash was to take a photo completely nude as a message that real people exist behind the finery of their avatars (some reminders of old and recent lessons to be discussed another day). I couldn’t find the right pose or private sim when I was online so I’ll save that idea for another time.

Lurking in my inventory was a pretty Agnes Finney frock that matched the teddie bear’s headpiece. I wish I’d remembered to put a smile on my avatar’s face.
